I agree 100% w/ your comment. If you go there, be aware of what you're getting into. Journalist, oil field engineer, truck driver or whatever... It's an unstable area of the world and Westerners are often viewed as an evil and corrupting influence by the religious fundamentalists.

There are a lot of Americans working in the Middle East. From my perspective, they are primarily mercenaries. I'm not talking about Xe, Triple Canopy, et al security contractors, who are, of course, actual mercenaries. But most others, with the exception of career foreign service officers and most h...

Does that apply to every Westerner (Infidel) employed and/or conducting business in a Islamic Caliphate? Nick Berg was a tele/comm contractor (or maybe he was a CIA asset) and he also got beheaded.
If there were no Western journalists in that area of the world, could we count on Al-Jazeera to gi...

Thought that they liked to stone women. Maybe female infidels can also qualify for beheading, in certain circumstances. Crazy frickers......

I was in NY for Sandy. I know a lot of people down here try to minimize it, but it wasn't a joke. Widespread and long lasting power outages. Major flooding - not and long or as deep as in N.O. after Katrina, but serious flooding. Temps dropped to near freezing within a week. It's a bitch when it's h...

My mother's GP went to the MDVIP business model a few years ago. I think she pays $1,500 a year. She's 83, so she sees him pretty frequently - every three or four months, more if she's having a problem. On average, i'd guess she probably makes about 6 or 7 office visits a year.
What I know for s...

How many of the ~320 million in the US population come into contact with police on a daily basis? How many citizens do you supposed the average cop on the street has contact with daily?

I didn't see anything either. I got up at 4:30 and went outside for about 10 minutes... Nothing.
Went back out about 5:40 and it was more of the same. However, we had maybe 30-40% cloud coverage, and the near full moon wasn't helping the situation any....

Charles Tracey said that, loud enough for others to hear, to the mother of a HS kid playing? While he was also refereeing the game?

Despite BigEd's bad experience, everyone I know who has had a kid there likes the place. Charles Tracey is a phenomenal athlete and is an "old school" coach. He's big on fundamentals and mental toughness. Your child will NOT be coddled! Everyone does NOT get a trophy in Charles' world. There are win...
